The Worth of Education

"America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week."

Evan Esar

I think this quote tells us something about our priorities. The Greeks put education and physical education as equals - a healthy mind in a healthy body. How did we get so out of kilter that sportspeople get paid so much more money? I guess though there are a lot less pro sports people than professors.
